Imaginary Themes, Volumes One, Two and Three
It's amusing, only because I've always been a singer first, but a few years ago I began my instrumental "Imaginary Themes", which bear little resemblance to my pop rock and progressive recordings. The Imaginary Themes were not really intended to be categorized as "New Age Music", though there is a similar intention of relaxing, meditating, dreaming and crossing the fine line between what is perceived as beautiful and as sad music throughout this gathering of sounds. Yet there are unquestionably crossings of genres herein, which go beyond the pale of one key or one tempo. Our culture demands that we attach a name to any type of sound because our language depends on it, but I would prefer "No Age".
For similar reasons, I gave the Imaginary Themes (64 short movements of instrumental music) their titles, because each one is owing to spiritually significant segments of my lifetime. Spiritual love, spiritual sadness. Great joy and exhilaration on Saturday morning and a bitter realization of mortality may arrive unexpectedly on a Tuesday. I find that my mind also demands I attach music for these feelings, for without them, there would be no reason inside of me to search for a sound for them.
Thus, this music might have only been imagined but never realized were it not for romantic sentiments and the need to express those moments. The moments become a living feeling; and are born as music. Hope you like my kids.
